CARTHAGE, MO.--- Mercy McCune-Brooks Hospital is offering PSA screenings for $10 in June. The test screens men for prostate cancer. Staff hope the screenings will help save lives.

"They tend to not seek the medical care preventatively and this is a way to screen for a serious malady," said Charles Featherly, Emergency Room Physician.

Featherly says there is expected to be 233,000 new cases of prostate cancer nationwide this year.
